Survey shows that older console owners prefer the PS3

Posted in General at 5:30 pm by playstation3

In getting our mums and dads to play videogames the Nintendo Wii did what no other console has done before. But according to a study, it’s the PS3 that is the most fancied console for those over 44.

Despite it’s easy-to-grasp remote controller, the Wii is most popular with 18-24 year olds, while it was found the Xbox 360 was popular with the slightly more mature 35-44 year olds.

It’s a strange collection of findings. Perhaps the likes of Grand Theft Auto 4 struck a chord with oldies wishing to take their frustrations out on the world of Liberty City?

Are games like Wii Sports and Wii Fit just too patronising for oldies? You can dispute the evidence by downloading the study here http://www.smrb.com/study/default.aspx?c=Marketwire%3a+Xbox+and+Playstation.
